Change Over Time

  • The head of the Roman Catholic Church was the pope, whom was thought to be flawless and he had the same authority as the religious scriptures.

  • With Protestant Reformation there were many changes.

    • 1. Sola Scriptura – The meaning is “by scripture alone”. Unlike the Roman Catholic Church, it means that only the scripture has authority of the people.

    • 2. Sola Fide – The meaning is “by faith alone”. It means that the people are saved by God through faith alone and nothing else.

    • 3. Sola Gratia – The meaning is “by grace alone”. It means that the people are saved only through God and no one else.

    • 4. Priesthood of all believers – it means that the people have an access to God through themselves.

    • 5. Protestant Christianity abolished the authority of the Pope, merit of good works, indulgences, mediation of Mary and the Saints, all the sacraments excluding Baptism and the Lord’s Supper because they were practiced by Christ, doctrine of transubstantiation, mass as a sacrifice, purgatory, prayers for the dead, and confessions to a priest.

Chronology l.jpg

  • Protestantism was first established as a branch of Christianity during the Protestant Reformation, also known as the Protestant Revolt. It began in 1517 when Martin Luther published the Ninety-Five Theses and ended in 1648 with the Treaty of Westphalia.

  • October 31, 1517: Protestant Reformation begins in Wittenberg where Martin Luther nailed the Ninety-Five Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences to the door of the Castle Church. The theses criticized the Church and the Pope and opened the doors for debate. The Protestant Reformation broke power of Catholic Church and split Europe into 2 groups: the Catholics and the Protestants.

  • 1520: Luther publishes 3 pamphlets: “Address to the Christian Nobility of the German Nation”, “Babylonian Captivity of the Church”, and “Freedom of a Christian”. Followers of Luther were known as Lutherans.

  • January 3, 1521: Luther is officially excommunicated (suspended from religious community).

Comparisons l.jpg

  • Protestants are a branch off of Christianity, so they are monotheistic (belief in one god), just like other monotheistic religions such as Judaism and Islam. In contrast, Protestantism is different from polytheistic (belief in multiple gods) religions such as the religions of early Greek and Egypt empires.

  • Protestantism originated in Germany. During the Protestant Reformation, Protestantism spread to other parts of Europe because of influential leaders such as Martin Luther and John Calvin and the printing press’s ability to copy and spread information quickly to multiple areas.

  • The pilgrims traveled to America so they could practice their Protestant faith in 17th century and avoid being forced to practice a certain religion by the Church; however, earlier in the 16th century, people such as Luther in Germany and Europe were excommunicated because of Protestant faith.

  • Protestantism was able to grow in different ways as well. In Europe the idea that family was fundamental unit fostered religous belief. In Asia, missionaries that helped establish schools and clinics were able to spread Protestantism.

  • British Baptists played a major role by converting people in Central Africa to Protestantism by providing them with a basic education and minimal welfare services.

  • Movement of Protestantism was strongest in the Northern Europe. The southern countries of Spain and Italy remained mainly Catholic.

  • Other branches of Protestantism emerged during the Reformation period. For example Calvinism was mainly followed in Switzerland, France, and the Netherlands. Lutheranism was quickly followed in Denmark. In England, Protestantism took many forms because of churches of Lutheranism, Calvinism, and Anglicanism all received popular support.

  • Both Protestantism and Catholicism were spread by European merchants, soldiers, and missionaries around the world, especially in the Americas.

  • -Protestantism came to each region in a different way. In Europe the idea of humanism gave rise to the Protetsant Reformation. In Asia, Protestantism was introduced by missionaries. In North America, Protestantism came with the Puritans.

Protestant Christianity Today

  • In 2005, there were an estimated 800 million Protestant Christians in the world. Now the Protestant religion is split up into many denominations like Lutherans, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists and the Congregationalists. Protestant Christianity also branched out into the fundamentalists. In the 21st century, about 27% of the population in the United States and Russia are fundamentalists. Protestantism has also been expanding into areas like Latin America, where Catholicism is more prominent in the area. In the end, the growth of Protestantism is still high. It had impacted religious practices all across the world, especially in countries in Latin America, who are converting to Protestantism. In China, Protestant Christianity has improved their economy with the practice of the Protestant Ethics.
